Stiff task for Court

Commanche Court will have to give upwards of a stone in weight away to all of his rivals if he is to repeat his success of 12 months ago in the Powers Gold Label Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse on Sunday.

Ted Walsh`s charge makes a quick reappearance after being pulled up in the Powers Tote Gold Cup at this course less than a fortnight ago.

His chance was lost that afternoon when he made a terrible blunder at the seventh fence, after which he seemed to lose all confidence.

Mick Fitzgerald makes the trek across the Irish Sea to ride Slaney Native for Jessica Harrington in the three mile, five-furlong contest.

Other British-based riders in action include Adrian Maguire (Linden`s Lotto), Timmy Murphy (David`s Lad) and Norman Williamson (Sheltering).
